Inquiring minds want to know. Jeffrey knows and came up with two reasons that seem opposed:
The first popped up publicly a few weeks ago when Apple announced its most recent financials for the previous quarter and last year. Apple is rich, Apple made a lot of money, blah blah blah. Oh, and the Mac had a record year.
Record sales for the Mac? Why?
Four out of five Macs are notebooks, and until the new MacBook Pro, all Mac notebooks featured the much-hated butterfly design you’ve read about for four years; the design that broke often, caused headaches more frequently, and cost as much as a used car to repair.
Why would customers buy a Mac with a faulty keyboard? They’re not paying attention.
I delayed buying a new Mac notebook because of the butterfly keyboard fiasco. I mentioned that to a friend, an iPhone 11 Pro user who gets a new iPhone every two years, who then asked if I was ready to buy now.
I said “No.” Why not? Because the Mac notebooks still don’t have Face ID. I want Face ID. My friend asked, “What’s Face ID?”
